We wait your annouce ! :muscle:


#6

Looking forward to see what the theme is :smiley:


#7

I would love to participate, but the rules prevent me. Specifically this one:

All Entries must be created using PlayCanvas and final games must be published and hosted on the PlayCanvas site.

I do my development engine-only due to (among other reasons) a poor internet connection. As such, I cannot publish/host the game at the playcanvas site. (as far as I know)
Is there the possibility of modification of the rules to allow engine-only users the chance to enter?


#8

How does it work if we want to update a submitted game? Can we publish a new one and mark the latest as current build without messing up the jam? I realize it won’t be judged but I need to add in a few sfx and would like to improve it.

For the period of judging (until the winners are announced around 1st April), please do not update the Primary App for the project.

You can either:

  • Fork your project and work from there.
  • Continue working in your existing project but do not update the Primary App.
